I {heart} Texas!

Are you spontaneous or does everything have to planned out in advance and perfectly?

I am Spontaneous. Don't get me wrong there are some things that do need to be planned out but if it presents itself, I love to just pick up and go in a moments notice. Last Tuesday I decided to call my friend Thuy who lives in the Dallas area. She just moved there and I was missing her. There was a scrapbook convention going on and I knew my fellow design team mates, Sarah De Guzman and Suzy West would be teaching a class. If you ever get a chance to take a Suzy West class. She is a hoot! Loved the mini book we made. Most important.... School is out and it was time for a mother/daughter adventure. We always have the boys with us and I am so glad we did this. Alex and I had a blast. It was relaxing watching movies, eating whenever and whatever we wanted, sleeping in, taking fun pictures, shopping, scrapping and just being together!!!!!

What a weekend. I had a wonderful relaxing time with my daughter, my sweet friend Thuy and all the girls we met at The Great American Scrapbook Convention. I had so many cool surprises....

So I am sure you would like some pictures....

Suzy West.... In the flesh. She is such a crazy girl... Crazy in a fabulous way. Wow....So cool to hear her stories and see how far her journey has taken her. Great to meet you Suzy. {thanks for getting us in to crop} P.S. love the socks and the flip flops!!!!!

Suzy was teaching a class using an awesome Punky Sprouts mini book....Sooooo, I was so excited to meet the owner of Punky Sprouts...Shellie Mitchell. She is such a sweet heart. Love her...
{THANKS for the book and the kit and being so kind}.

I finally got to meet Sarah in person!!!!! She and I are on These are a Few of My Favorite Things Challenge blog together!!!! And now My Paper Tree House Kit club design team. After a year of emails and facebook and challenges it is so great to be able to place all the words with all her actions. Now when I read her emails it will be like she is right there talking to me... Yayyyy!

Who would have guessed it but Stephanie Hunt, the Creative Director of Bella Blvd also took Suzy's class. It was great to meet her. She is so beautful!
Me, Alex and My sweet friend Thuy. Thank goodness for timers on the camera... I loved my time with my best girls. We watched movies, ate out, shopped and just really enjoyed the friendshi we have. Love you Thuy, and Thank you for opening your house to us. ON SUCH SHORT NOTICE!!!!!

I have something cooked up special for this photo.... Will post it tomorrow. I [heart] Texas.

And last but not least... you can't go to Texas and not have Bar-b-que!!!!!!! I was so excited to meet Micheal, Thuys boyfriend. Heard a lot about him..... They are such a cute couple. They took Alex and I to eat at Riskies Bar-b-que. Look at those Brisquet tacos... They are supposed to be on the lighter side.... I guess they mean dietary and not quantity... Everything is bigger in Texas. Great food, Great company and great weekend. Thank you Thuy and Micheal. Big hugs, Amy
